Pug,

my erasure-comment posting was entirely in jest. 


If your little emoticom joke was just in jest... WHY erase it?

If you're being satirical... why be ashamed of it?

Why not leave it up for others to laugh about?

You say you're just jesting... but then you hide it?

I don't get it...

Emotie Trivia


I like Puget's emotie, which seems to say, "I have curly hair."

Huh
 

Bart, I like the question mark emotie too. It's so intellectually de rigueur... Kinda. Maybe. Who knows? Sometimes emoticons cause more confusion—than helping out the Reader with any affective clues, don’t you think?

I know you’re just jesting—about the emoticon with curly-cue hair. It’s a funny little emoticon isn’t it? It expresses so much—kinda like the one with the big vibrating bulging shocked Eyeballs. Then there’s the one with the puckered Kiss—so discrete and courteous…

With a little bit of imagination one could perhaps even compose a modest little message using just emoticons:

         Emoticon Trivia


        Roll EyesRoll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
           
           Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool
           Cool Huh Huh Huh Cool
           Cool Huh Grin Huh Cool
           Cool Huh Huh Huh Cool
           Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool

        Roll EyesRoll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes


Of course, I’m just jesting. How could one use emoticons instead of words when you need words to say something with? After all, usually it’s the other way around, right? Words first—then emoticons later?

The whole idea of backing up online Forum statements with reassuring emoticons has a long history—going back to Texts with choice groupings of periods, commas, question marks. I get ads with animated emoticons every day—somebody is spending a lot time with all that emoticon artistry. And making a buck off it too.

Personally I’m intrigued by emotie nomenclature. And how the Blogosphere uses online symbols for communication. There is a group of writers (“concrete”) who use nothing but symbols like emoties. Along with Photoshop tools. It's interesting.

The last trivia q. was Temp's regarding Dustin's limp.  Or should I say "limping."   All of us guessed some correct films, so anyone is up.

In which film was Vanessa Regrave's nose running in every single closeup?*


*Clarification:  her nose was literally runny and it had nothing to do with her role.

Without yet having a definitive answer, I still want to declare this the Trivia Question of the Month.

I think it is that recent movie where here daughters come to visit while she makes her death-bed "surprise stories".

I had to check the title: Evening.

(but then I found out it wasn't that Michael Cunningham had a thing for Virginia Woolf when he revamped The Hours. He appears to have a thing for Vanessa because he wrote this screenplay too!

The only other possible runny nosed production would be grown up Briony in: Atonement

I've seen neither one as yet. The current increased rate in receiving good film channels on subscribed tv  is due to inflation but it is almost as much as I pay to go to my razzle-dazzle Christian-accomplished multi-sell-out where I will pay through the nose to see Heath Ledger's next last act in a few days.

I'm torn between Genuine Class, No Aliens Darling, and Fine in Torn Jeans. 

Those are remarkable anagrams. 

As to the trivia question, if anyone still in the running knows about her running nose....
